Honoring Our Archetypes: A Collaging Playshop
Back by Popular Demand! Join Topaz Weis as she guides you in collaging cards to honor the archetypes that are guiding your life story.
Archetypes are the encompassing, reoccurring roles that shape and define human experience, yet they are personal to each of us. Carl Jung suggests archetypes comprise psychological patterns derived from historical roles and events in life, such as the Mother, Child, Trickster, and Healer. Creating cards around multiple archetypes will help us to discover how these powerful “personalities” influence all aspects of our journey (psychological, spiritual, financial, career, relationships, and creativity.) So much wisdom can be gained to enrich our lives and enlighten our journey.

9/15: Self-Care for Caring Professionals
This is a collaborative workshop offered by Michelle Turbide and Topaz Weis. It is intended for clinicians, social workers, nurses, caregivers, teachers, body workers, or any helping professional. Created as an introduction to multi-modal expressive arts, we will explore the use of these modalities as a resource for self-care and harvesting a more ‘embodied’ presence in our lives and work.
Expressive arts are often used for stress reduction, physical and emotional healing, and the understanding of self. Everyone needs to care for themselves, but those of us in the helping professions need to take special care to do this, as we are the resource that drives our work.
The workshop engages in experiential exercises to explore career values, strengths, and the integration of the two utilizing movement, art making, written/spoken word, as well as process/discussion. No talent or previous art experiences are required.
Postponed to May, 2018 Exact date TBD
9:00 am – 4:30 pm,
Cost: $200 (includes 6 CEU approved from NASW-VT and all materials)
